At Hayesdown First School, we have 5 Learning Behaviours that will help children become great learners. The aim of our Learning Behaviours is to help children understand HOW they learn, identifying the behaviours and skills they need to be successful.
This learning behaviour promotes the ability to keep going when things get tough. We will all face challenges in life and if we want to learn we must persevere and keep trying. The idea that everyone will fail or make mistakes is important as we only learn when we make “marvellous mistakes”.
This learning behaviour promotes the ability to do things by yourself and be self-motivated. It can be about looking after our own things and making sure we have everything we need to be ready for learning. We encourage everyone to be independent at Hayesdown First School.
This learning behaviour promotes the ability to work alongside others as part of a team. Linking with other people develops important social skills to help us be successful. Linking can also relate to linking ideas and learning across lessons or between home and school.
This learning behaviour promotes the ability to review learning and consider what has gone well. It is also important to consider what could be further improved to make learning even stronger. To be a great learner we must reflect on what we have already achieved and look forward to what we can do better in the future.
This learning behaviour promotes the ability to be an individual and use our imagination. Trying new things and changing the way things are done can create new learning. It is important to respect everyone as an individual, promoting and celebrating original thinking.
